I don't want this to sound like a specification - and it's aimed at content authors, not UA implementors.  So I amended the text in a number of ways, and added a note about Mongolian.  I also removed the definition from slide 17 and added a link to slide 14's description.

Change 'fine-tuning' to 'describing'.

I added this comment to the table of i18n comments to the CSS WG wrt ruby module.
